Microwave Coffee Cupcake by Bellligerent Microwave Coffee Cupcake by Bellligerent
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Yeah, I really wanted to take some photos of food (especially sweets), so I made a single serving microwave coffee cake .. :P single serving is good because that way I don't end up eating too much afterwards ^o^

Aghh, please bear with me on the sloppy icing job..it was my first time icing a cupcake in like, a swirly..way.. ._______.

This was probably one of my most frustrating efforts to just take a decent photo of food.
1) I made the cake just to take the photo LOL (well, eating and enjoying it is a close second priority of course :3)
2) Something happened while it was cooking and well, one side of the bottom was like, missing. So it wouldn't stand up. SO there is actually a pile of craisins holding up the cupcake in the back ;)
3) I screwed up on the icing several times and had to scrap it off probably..2 or 3 times before I finally settled for this one.

>w< what an experience..at least the finished product came out..satisfactory :)

Thank you in advance for any favourites! I'm sorry I can't thank all of you individually.

"I made the cake just to take the photo"

I do that like, every week! haha. And I buy some ingredients I never use again or care for, I give it to someone else to eat.

This looks like such a yummy treat! nice job.

If there's some things I cannot do, it's baking desserts. So you can just imagine how much I crave for sweet things like cuppycakes and stuff!! Pure torture! Hahaha! Anyways, I love this. As I love all of your art! :heart:

Unfortunately, baking desserts is ALL I can do! When I look at your food photography, I always admire your cooking AND photography skills ^_^
And thanks so much! You are so kind :heart:

You're so sweet to say that. I'm bad at measuring and baking is more like chemistry and measuring. I admire yours and I love your work, too, dear friend! :huggle:

that's not sloppy! and it looks good :D
I dont even know how to cook with a microwave (in fact, I don't have one. A few months ago, my family decided not to use one anymore)

haha thanks >w< to be honest, I had to scrape off the icing several times and redo it before I got this one and decided to settle for it XD

Haha I can cook ONLY with a microwave ): well, I can use an oven too, but I don't know how to use a stove! I could've baked a cake in an oven, but I was lazy, so I opted for a microwave version :P

I dont even use icing cuz I dont have the ingredients for it at home. Besides, I don't like desserts with too much cream and icing. That's why I went for mostly fruit tarts and ice cream on the cruise.

Toaster ovens are what I use for muffins cuz they're smaller and more convenient :XD:

I happened to have some icing sugar at home XD
I decided to decorate the cupcake with icing because I thought it looked a little plain on its own :P

Ahh, I have one of those toaster ovens too! ^_^

speaking of small convenient ovens, it's pretty funny how an easy bake oven uses a lightbulb for power.
